Surname Project

We have an active project researching Oxfordshire Surnames and DNA. Do check it out and participate.

Oxfordshire Surname Interest List (OXSIL)

The Oxfordshire Surname Interest List, or OXSIL, is an online resource to help genealogists and family historians find others researching the same surnames in the parishes of the current county of Oxfordshire.  OXSIL is free and available to anyone with interests in Oxfordshire surnames. It is maintained by three OFHS members in close collaboration with OFHS.

OXSIL also provides a means for OFHS members (only) to list their surname interests beyond Oxfordshire.

Go to the OXSIL website

We keep a regular record of OXSIL’s latest news.

Surname frequency

If you want to see the relative frequency of Oxfordshire surnames from 1538-1851, a popularity tracker has been created for this purpose.

Please note that this file exists on a separate website.
